Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - June 22, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta U.S. Company Expected To Get Satelite Contract OTTAWA (CP) - Telesat Canada Corp. is expected to recammend that Hughes Aircraft Co. of California be awarded a muLti-million-dollo-r contract to build two doimestic spiace telecommunications satellites for Canada. Telesat's seven-man board of directors is believed to have decided at private meetings last week that the Hughes bid should be accepted over one from RCA Ltd. of Montreal. Under the Telesat Act, the federal cabinet must make the final decision on who gets the contract. An announcement i s expected next week. Hughes offered to build 12-chaiinel satellites capable of haiEdling 12 color TV signals at a cost slightly less than $30,000,000. The satellites would have a seven-year life. RCA, the first bidder, is re- ported to have cut its price to about $40,000,000 from $63,000,-OOO after the Hughes bid came in. RCA's proposal was for six-channel satellites with a five-year life. RCA Ltd., based in Montreal, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of RCA Corp., a U.S. company. Telesat, a government-public-private partnership, hopes to have one satelUte in orbit by 1972 with the second on standby. Communications Mini sttsr Eric Kierans last year estimated the cost of the space satellite progi-am at $65,000,000 to $75,000,000, includmg $6,000,000 for launch into orbit using U.S. facilities and about $20,000,000 for ground control and relay stations. Heath Will Impose More Restrictions LONDON (AP) - A Coaiserv-ative government under Edward Heath will impose further restrictions on non-white immi;- When you need money for any reason within reason, see HFC Don't misunderstand.

This was made clear today by Heath in repeating the party manifesto, published before B r i t a i n's national election: "... Future immigration will be allowed only in strictly-defined special cases. There vrill be no furtlier large-scale permanent immigration." Powell, re-elected in his Wolverhampton district, wants a complete halt to non-white immigration and a scheme of government-subsidized repatriation for inunigrants already here. The Tory niamfesto recognized that: "Good race relations are of immense proportions We are determined that all citizens shall continue to be treated as equal before the law, and without discrimination.  PLAN NEW SYSTEM ". . . We will establish a new smgle system of control over all inunigration from overseas. The home sea-etary of the day will have complete control, subject to the machinery for appeal, over the entry of individuals into Britain." It said thajt in the future, "work permits will not carry the right of permanent settlement for the holder or his dependants." "Such permits as are issued will be limited to a specific job in a specific area for a fixed period, normally 12 months. There will, of course, be no restrictions on travel. "We will give assistance to Commonwealth immigrants who wish to return to their countries of origin, but we will not tolerate any attempt to harass or compel them against their wiU." Heatli scratched Powell from his list of potential ministers long before the election for his outspoken views on the racial question. The size of Powell's victory, however, prompted many observers to suggest that Heath must recognize the appeal of Powell's p(dides and give him a government role.

WEEKDAYS AND 12 NOON SATURDAYS The Letltlmdge Herald Monday, June 22, 1970 - THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD - 17 Britain's Trade With China Close To Record Level LONDON (AP) - Britain's trade with China is racing toward record levels this year. Grovernment sources also reported that London's relations with Peking are warming. The board of trade said today British exports duiing the first ;oiu* months of 1970 exceeded �21,000,000 (about $2,500,000), representing more than a 25-per-cent increase over last year's peak figures. Imports over the same period have re-m a i n e d steady at about �12,000,000 (about $30,000,000). If that trend continues, in-fm-mants said, the total volume of British-Chinese trade through the year will easily exceed the 1969 record of �92,200,000 (about $230,050,000). Waraer Area EMO Team Wins Again CALGARY (CP) - An eight-man Border County team from tlie Warner area of southern Alberta won the fourth annual Alberta Emergency Measures Organizaition rescue competition. It was the border county unit's third victory in four years. Teams from Calgary, the Ounty of Two Hills, Border County, Ed^n, Leduc and Wapiti competed for the L. C. Halmrast rescue trophy. A Calgary team comprised of members of the city police search and rescue squad won the trophy for the team displaying the higtest degree of skill in first aid techniques. But to the British an equally cheering aspect has been signs of improving political and personal relations between officials of the two countries. These include Chairman Mao Tse-tung stopping and chatting with Charge d'Affairs John Den-son of Britain dliring Peking May Day celebrations and the appearance of a Chinese deputy foreign minister last week at a British reception in Peldng marking the Queen's official birthday. He joined in toasting the monairch. One nagging problem remains in the way of relatively narmal relations. Seven British subjects ill China appear to be under de-tertion-although four are Icnown Communists who settled there. The other three are either under house arrest or in jail for specific offences. Spending By Cheque Is Growing Rapidly Taylor Satisfied Triple Trailers Are No Hazard CALGARY (CP) - Highways Minister Gordon Taybr said Saturday that his department is satisfied "that everything possible has been done to make the operation of a triple trailer trucking unit as safe as possible." Mr. Taylor was expanding at a news conference on his announcement that triple trailers would be permitted on the 200-mile Calgary - to - Edmonton highway except on Sundays and holidays or when the highway is icy or heavily snow covered. OTTAWA (CP) - Canadians are spending by dieque at a growing clip, but old-fashioned money is far from going out of style. Paying by cheque has reached writer's-cramp proportions. The 51 bank-clearing houses handle almost 100,000,000 cheques a month. All those slips of paper represent perhaps $60,000,000,-000 being shuffled monthly among Canadians. The Canadian Bankers Association has issued estimates of cheque use which show growth at a rate of about 10 per cent a year. But use of banknotes and coin has been expanding ahnost as fasi>-by more than nine per cent in the last three inflationary years, compared with growth of less than six per cent annually in the previous three. MORE MONEY VOLUME The Bank of Canada estimates the face value of bank-rx)tes in circulation today at about $3,400,000,000-up by $1,000,000,000 in five years. That is about $155 for every Ccina-dian. The Royal Mnt estimated coins worth $480,911,008 were in circulation at the beginning of the year. The mint figured that out to $22.62 a head of population. The continued popularity of money means muM-miUion-dol-lar business for three Ottawa enterprises-the British-American Bank Note Co., the Canadian Bank Note Co. and the Royal Mint, a Crown corporation nmning its'own operations since last year. The Bank of Canada, responsible for buying, controlling and distributing money since its establishment in 1934, spends about $5,000,000 a year to supply Canadians with clean, crisp paper money. The bulk of that sum goes to the banknote companies, which also print other monetary securities such as stocks, bonds and treasury bills. Although the central bank and its designers keep working on ways to make paper money more durable, the widely-used lower denominations last on average less than a year. The bills of $1 and $2 value get too dirty for further use m just over 10 mOTths. The two banknote companies -British-American operating since 1866, Canadian since 1897 -thus can count on continuous work. It is a comforfing thou^t to a money printer to know that the 132,000,000 one-dollar bills and 45,000,000 two-dollar notes in drculation today wiU have to be replaced by next April. Twenties account for almost half the paper money in circiUa-tion. There are 67,000,000 of them around, worth $1,340,000,000. The 6,172,000 $100 bUls and tbe 40,400 $1,000 notes in circulation are expected to last longer. While keeping the country in paper money costs money, the mint has been making it in both senses. By judicious bujing with one hand, canny selling to the government on the other and a little official moonlighting in between, tbe mint ran up a profit of $586,919 last year. The profit, which is turned over to the federal treasury, has been given a boost by export sales of coin newly-negotiated since the mint became a self-managing corporaiitan. Double Billings Eliminated Under Medic Agreement EDMONTON (CP) - Double billings for doctors' services will be eliminated under a new agreement between the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission, the Alberta Medical Association and the College of Physicians. The new benefits schedule provides for a six-per-cent increase and brings payments in line with a fee schedule approved by tbe medical profession in July 1, 1969. At present, doctors often bill patients for the difference between what doctors charge and what the insurance plan paid. This meant an extra $1 for office calls and more for special services. James Falconer, commission chairman, said the increase "will eliminate most of the balance billing." The new schedule goes into effect July 1 and will hold until July, 1971. Mr. Falconer said the only extra charges after July 1 of this year would be in cases where a doctor feels extra services warrant it. ORDER PAINT ETZKOM (HNS) - Tbe recreational meeting was held and several items discussed. One of the main ones was the purchasing of white paint in order to paint the skating rink and dressing room that was built last Fall. Warren Penner is in charge. A women's softball team was formed and the first game is scheduled at Foremost.
